SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with more than $1M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you set your DFS lineups for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on DraftKings or FanDuel on Sunday, May 20, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and rolled through the NBA season, cashing huge on numerous tournament and cash game rosters.
He was able to do all that thanks to some spot-on picks.
On Wednesday, McClure built his roster around Rockets guard James Harden at $12,300 on FanDuel and $10,400 on DraftKings. The result: Harden posted a double-double with 27 points and 10 rebounds -- returning 47 points on DraftKings.
For Sunday's single-game slate involving Game 3 of Rockets-Warriors in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, McClure loves Warriors guard Stephen Curry at $15,000 on FanDuel and $12,600 on DraftKings.
In Golden State's Game 1 victory over the Rockets, Curry filled up the stat sheet with 18 points, eight assists, six rebounds and two steals, producing over 43 points on DraftKings and FanDuel. He's a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in for Sunday's slate.
McClure is also loving Rockets guard Chris Paul at $14,500 on FanDuel and $12,000 on DraftKings.
Paul gets an ideal matchup against a Warriors squad that has struggled to guard him. In Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, he exploded for 23 points, 11 rebounds and three assists -- returning over 45 points on DraftKings. And he has scored at least 35 points on DraftKings and FanDuel in eight of his last nine games, so take advantage of this matchup and watch the points roll in.
